Why Install a Humidifier?

There are various good reasons to consider installing a humidifier in your home. You may have excessively dry air, which can lead to dry skin, cracks in your wooden furniture, and a slower recovery time from illness.If you own a forced-air distribution system, then your home may be particularly prone to such indoor air quality issues because heating or cooling the air in a closed home without adequate ventilation may actually make your indoor air uncomfortable and stuffy. If you’re considering an indoor air quality upgrade, such as a humidifier, then consider calling the Westlake humidifier experts at Westland Heating and Air Conditioning. Our technicians can make sure that your new device operates smoothly.

There are various types of humidifiers available for installation in your home, but to truly make a difference in your home’s indoor air quality, you need a whole-house model. Such devices integrate directly into your existing HVAC system, often near the air handler. They work by pushing air through a water panel that adds vapor to the air, thus humidifying what was once dry air. A sensor within the unit detects the amount of relative humidity in your air, and allows you to control the humidity according to your preferences.

Reasons why you might consider installing a humidifer in your Westlake home:

  • Dry skin. Indoor air quality is all about comfort. If you want to make sure that your home is as comfortable as possible, then you need to make sure you can control the humidity. Dry skin can be an indication of low humidity, and there’s not enough moisturizer in the world that can change the humidity of the air.
  • Nosebleeds. In very dry conditions, you may develop nosebleeds in response to dry air. While this is rare, a humidifier can help with this and other issues.
  • Cracking furniture, moldings, or paint. Such materials depend for their integrity on a certain level of humidity in the air. Low levels can lead to damage in the long-term.
